  • VIBCONNECT RF - Online Condition Monitoring per Funk

    The first wireless condition monitoring system of PRÜFTECHNIK accomplishes three things at the same time: low cost + quick and easy installation + self-contained operation. VIBCONNECT RF does away with cabling between the sensors and the base unit. Instead of that VIBCONNECT RF transfers data via radio signals over a distance of up to 300 meters. The system consists of a central processing unit as well as up to 50 sensor units positioned all over the plant and installed on the machines on site. Each sensor unit comes with a radio module and two sensors, recording not only the vibration signal but also the temperature at the measuring point. Sensors and wireless module may be installed independently thus ensuring an optimized signal reception and most favourable measuring conditions. For the power supply of a sensor unit three options are available: a lithium battery with an approximately 4-year battery life, a 24-volt power supply, or an energy harvester transforming machine vibrations into electric energy. For wireless transmission the system uses the 868 MHz band in Europe and the 915 MHz band in North America which are ideal for any application without wireless long-term communication.

  • Turning vibration data into knowledge

    Get to the root of your machine problems with VIBGUARD Viewer 1.1

    ISMANING – January 23rd 2014 – VIBGUARD Viewer, the software platform for the VIBGUARD family of online condition monitoring systems by PRÜFTECHNIK, now comes fully geared for complex machine diagnosis. Introducing many powerful new features, VIBGUARD Viewer 1.1, the new software update helps unveil your machinery’s most hidden secrets.
    Orbit Analysis enables determining the root-cause of atypical shaft orbit movements, for example on turbomachinery and reciprocating compressors. By simply connecting a VIBGUARD to an existing real-time protection system, VIBGUARD Viewer processes the readings from the already installed displacement sensors into useful information to diagnose the exact cause of a problem.
    With the full Modbus (TCP/ RTU) Support, VIBGUARD can be seamlessly integrated into your production processes. Signals from VIBGUARD can easily flow to the PLC, and process parameters monitored by the PLC can travel to VIBGUARD for in-depth analysis and diagnosis. Combining machine parameters such as temperature, RPM or torque with vibration data, this full bidirectional communication not only gives you the big picture of your machines, but you can also access more complex analysis when a problem arises.
    The optional feature Event Recording serves as your machinery’s black box. When an alarm is triggered, VIBGUARD records all relevant data, even the signals before the alarm occurred. Up to 22 channels – including key phasors – are written into a FIFO memory. Pre and post-trigger duration as well as the sampling rate can be configured. This way, VIBGUARD collects useful historical information to help identify the cause of an event and take the corresponding corrective actions. Perfect for catching transient events and understanding why they happened, this feature is the ideal tool for monitoring and evaluating production-critical parameters like, for example, torque in the drive trains of cement mills or vessels.
    VIBGUARD Viewer 1.1 is available through your local PRÜFTECHNIK partner. Standard features are included free of charge. Please contact us for more information.

  • ROTALIGN Ultra iS - Next generation of Alignment Systems

    PRÜFTECHNIK Alignment Systems GmbH will be presenting their latest product, ROTALIGN Ultra iS (intelligent System), at this year's Maintenance Dortmund. This intelligent laser shaft alignment system consists of the proven ROTALIGN Ultra computer and the next generation sensALIGN sensor. The new product facilitates quick, easy, and therefore more precise machinery alignment, consequently enhancing machine efficiency as well as reducing energy consumption and operating costs.

    Rotalign Ultra iS offers unparalleled system accuracy and precision. The infinite measuring range is capable of handling gross misalignments and measuring long couplings. The 7-axis sensALIGN sensor with its high definition position sensitive detector (HD PSD) will master practically any possible measuring task.

    intelliSWEEP, the intelligent high definition measurement mode, provides for the intelligence in the sensor. During shaft rotation an extremely large number of measurement data will be recorded automatically and continuously – a much more precise and refined method compared to measuring procedures only focusing on three positions. At the same time, the user will receive information on the quality of the measurement. In case of disruptive interferences such as inadmissible coupling backlash or vibration influences from adjacent machinery, the system provides further hints on how to obtain better measurement data. "The intelligent sensor actively supports the user by detecting and eliminating errors automatically. sensALIGN thinks proactively and analytically, and evaluates the quality of the measuring results upon completion of the measuring process.", says Michael Stolze, Managing Director of Prüftechnik Alignment Systems GmbH.

    Measurement of vibration has been integrated in the sensor enabling the user to perform vibration check measurements before, during and after the alignment process.


    The Bluetooth module transfers data directly from the sensor to the operating computer. Sensor and laser communicate via an individual laser pulse telegram. Any relevant status information, such as rotational angle position or battery status, will be transmitted.

    Aside from high precision technology, focus has also been placed on an appealing and functional design for simplified handling and operation. High-performance rechargeable batteries allow for continuous sensor operation of up to twelve hours.

  • VIBXPERT II - Even more flexibility

    PRÜFTECHNIK will be presenting a great variety of practical innovations and improvements to the users of the VIBXPERT II family. With their upgrade to version 3.20, condition data can now be collected safely and conveniently via modular measuring point multiplexers. Up to 6 of these modules, comprising a total of 54 accelerometers, are controlled fully automatically – measurements are taken and the results are then stored in the device. A special limiting device even allows for data collection in hazardous areas.

    Together with their new upgrade, PRÜFTECHNIK Condition Monitoring will be introducing their new VIBXPERT II Balancer: a device particularly designed for balancing. In addition to its balancing function the Balancer provides vibration analyses, resonance tests and phase measurements to support the diagnosis of an imbalance and to determine the optimum operating conditions for the rotor.
    The VIBXPERT II Balancer may be upgraded to FFT data collection and diagnostic capabilities at any time – it only takes a password.
    The new Excel report module offers greater flexibility in documenting and archiving the results. Any measurement data collected may be exported to a well-structured and editable report in Excel format and transferred to a PC.
